"Total Warfare, Good or Bad"
Sherman's march to see seems like a drastic measure to take to me. But was it necessary for the union so that they could finally get somewhere in the war.
In Sherman's march he and his men raided towns in the south and completely destroyed places to win them over. Also in Sherman's march he went all the way from where he started to the ports of Savannah. Sherman's march is what we would call total warfare and you can compare this event to the napoleonic war were Napoleon did anything in his power to gin control of europe.
